IMHO $3,500 would be a reasonable price for this set, and I am confident that it will eventually sell for that at some of the other retailers if you have the patience to wait long enough. Once a successor model is in production the prices are sure to come down.
knowing the last one I bought from Sony it was a 1 year warranty. their 5 year extended one was not that expensive.
you might check, they come to your house and take it for repairs up to those 5 years.

Sony no longer offers extended warranties. Plus EWs are generally not worth the expense; if something is inherently wrong in a piece of electronics like a TV it will usually manifest itself before the first year is up. Additionally, most major credit cards (including the one I used for this purchase) will double the manufacturer's warranty period, giving me two years of coverage.

However, given the very high cost of this TV and the impracticality of anything short of in-house service due to its size, I might still give some thought to an EW from the retailer, AAFES. They offer three years @ $200 or four years @ $270. Doesn't seem worth it, but I won't dismiss the option out-of-hand to have four years' peace of mind.

Edit, I missed your part about my settings. My settings are calibrated to RGB Full. With limited dynamic range signals the color and brightness settings would have to be changed.

Back to this topic again, do all the HDMI ports support YCbCr 4:4:4 or only specific port?

They should, you just have to use Graphics/Game scene mode.
